legitimate rape is his democratic opponent claire mccaskill had hand selected todd akin to be her opponent before he ever made the comments about rape. claire mccaskill used campaign money to run ads that were for todd akin advertising him to republican primary voters as the true conservative in the race. that's because claire mccaskill knew before he made his rape comments that he's the kind of guy who would make comments like that. he's proved her right. remember when rand paul came out against the civil rights act and then had to take it back when running for senate? remember how bad that was for him? did you hear what todd akin just said? stay with us. that's coming up. machine [ humming ] [ humming ] [ male announcer ] kraft macaroni & cheese. you know you love it. >>> i want to thank them for their help as well. and just in case anybody watching throughout the country, they are both available. no, no, no. only kidding, only kidding. only kidding, only kidding. ariana definitely is not available but ayla is. >> stop. >> this is ariana and this is ayla. i can see i'm going to

this done. >> ifill: last august, democrat claire mccaskill became one of the luckiest endangered incumbents in the nation. >> this election will be close. i can't remember an election in our state for this seat that wasn't close. >> ifill: but for mccaskill, who won only narrowly in 2006, close is good. and the latest polls actually shows her ahead. but until recently, national democrats actually expected her to lose. >> i give you our next senator, todd akin. >> ifill: that changed when challenger todd akin made waves by going on television to declare that rape victims should not be allowed to have abortions because they seldom get pregnant. >> from what i understand from doctors, that's really rare. if it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. >> ifill: the video went viral and akin's national profile soared. but the five-term congressman immediately became a political pariah within his own party, with mitt romney, paul ryan and every senior missouri republican demanding he get out of the race. akin apologized, but he did not drop ou

at the st. charles festival. but she's been working for mccaskill. >> claire is a strong woman, strong convictions. she's tried to work with both sides. but we get the reaction from the "persuasion" people that we're calling that they don't want to vote for claire mccaskill because they think that she's too much connected to president obama. but when we talk about it more and when they find out more about who todd akin is, they say "well, i don't like him either." and a non-vote is pretty much an assistance to claire. >> ifill: but after akin refused to get out of the race-- and as national republicans began to worry the missouri seat might cost them control of the senate -- some akin critics, including senator roy blunt, have returned to the fold. still, the party rift remains. former republican senator john danforth, a force in the st. louis community, said he would rather write in a candidate than support akin. >> i can understand their position. i mean, it's like counting apples. you know, they're saying, "well, we need 50 or 51 in the senate and he's one person who's compe

, another post watched senate race in the u.s. right now, that's missouri's claire mccaskill against todd akin featuring rape victims. let's take a look at a clip. >> i'm a and a pro-life mother and rape survival. in the hospital, i was offered emergency contraception because of my personal beliefs, i declined. here's what else i believe. no woman should be denied that choice. what todd akin said is offensive. i've never voted for claire mccaskill, but because of todd akin, i will now. >> so how does akin answer to that? >> it's very hard. the good news for todd akin is that missouri is a purchase leaning state, it has been for the last few years. and so if he gets all the republicans to be able to vote for him, he could end up winning. the problem is that controversial legitimate rape comment that he gave back in august would probably peel away some republican women, some independent women that would end up giving claire mccaskill the advantage precisely the person featured in that ad. >> and back to the issue in the balance of power. our new polls out today on the senate races in florid

claire mccaskill. as of friday mccaskill hilled a five point lead in the clear politics polling average, and in a debate thursday night both candidates ignored the legitimate rape comment in favor of trading blows centered around the presidential contenders. the key question from the last presidential debate. >> claire mccaskill was the first to endorse barack obama, and she was his strong right hand passing legislation, voting with him 98% of the time. >> he supports the boss being able to decide whether or not you get paid less just because you're a woman, and if you look at congressman akin's office, in fact, he is the boss that does that. >> mitt romney has a comfortable lead over the president in missouri, but could the desire for the show me state to show todd akin the door move that state into the president's column? still with me melanie, cris fen achen, rick tyler, and christina beltran, professor of cultural analysis at new york university, and the author of "the trouble with unity." all right. i'm coming to you because you work for the akin campaign and here is the ki

welcome senator claire mccaskill and congressman todd akin. [cheers and applause] a coin toss was held last week to decide who would make the first opening statement. congressman akin had decided to go second. claire mccaskill. >> thank you. thank you for this debate and for congressman akin for being here. if you are watching this at home, i understand completely. it is great to be here and to have a debate about very important issues. i went to washington, d.c. as an auditor and prosecutor to solve problems for missouri families and to hold government accountable to taxpayers. i knew it would take a couple of things. it would take part in work. it with a compromise. -- it would take hard work. it would take a compromise. first, in remarks. i had no idea the earmarking process was until i got there. lobbyists and campaign donations. i said, i will not play this game. we should do this based on merit and not who you know. i never asked for an earmarked. i went to work with republicans senators such as mccain and other republican colleagues. we banned earmarks. i am proud of that work.

the claire mccaskill campaign. it was sent out by a democratically leaning superpac. but this is obviously clearly designed to benefit her in the election. claire mccaskill is a very good campaigner. some of her ads in this election i should say, other than the talking mailer are among the best ads i've seen a democrat run anywhere. whatever you think about her politics, she's a very good campaigner. even has a very, very good campaigner it was almost impossible to imagine senator claire mccaskill being able to hold on to her senate seat this year just because she's the senator from missouri and missouri is trending more and more strongly republican. this is going to be a difficult race. right? the only reason she is not, however, just competing for this race, the only reason she's not just competitive for holding on to her seat, she's actually pretty far out ahead in her state right now. the only reason is because republicans picked a carl paladino type to run against her. the republicans picked todd akin. there are a lot of things neanderthal about todd akin. if you leave this

stories. i'll start. todd akin, congressman for missouri, running against claire mccaskill was, when he came out with a statement and introduced a bill that women cannot get pregnant from legitimate rape. cosponsored by paul ryan i might add. then everybody abandoned him. the republicans fled. they pulled their money out. everybody went everywhere they could. what happens now? it's dead even race. he may win, which is amazing to me but might say something about the new republican party. >> dana: are you saying that the legislation he said women can't get pregnant from rape? >> bob: legitimate rape. >> dana: that's not what it says. it was a stupid comment he made. >> bob: did he not say legitimate rape? >> dana: he did but he didn't put it in the legislation cosponsored by paul ryan. >> andrea: why would you try to link it to paul ryan. people don't like claire mccaskill. that's why the polls are like that. >> greg: am i up? got a fundraising letter from president obama. read it. i don't want to lose the election. not because of what losing would mean for me, michelle and i will be f

controversial comments. just last week he said that his opponent, claire mccaskill was being not laidly-like. it was a comment straight out of the '60s and to hear that he doesn't support equal pay for the same work for women, beyond i didn't agree with the lilly leadbetter pay fair act, he went further than that and said, maybe it shouldn't be illegal for women at all to be paid less for men for the same work. and he cited freedom and where is the outrage now? the outrage is gone. >> that's what i'm concerned about here. where is the moderate republican? where are the republicans that stands up and denounces this now? >> the only person that i've seen is chris christie, who is a more modulate state moderate state. >> i mean, frankly, the inmates are running the asylum at this point. >> this is amazing. and it's the legacy of all of these anti-abortion campaigns and crusades that they've had and how far they've pushed this party to the right. well, erin, thank you. laura, thank you both for joining us tonight. >> thank you. >>> the supreme court is back and it reminds us just how important t

claire mccaskill has been running some ads. here is one. >> i'm a republican single mother and rape survivor. i was offered contraception in the hospital but because of my beliefs i declined. i have never voted for claire mccaskill, but because of todd akin i will now. >> they are already tied themselves to todd akin and the democrats need to point that out. for many years they have said there is violent crime out there. and now they are saying even if you are raped by the terrorist, you have to have that terrorist baby. and women are rejecting that choice and saying that is my choice, and no one should get between a woman and her doctor in making that decision. that's where democrats need to point out the fallsy and say if you want the freedom to make your own choices, as a woman speaking in missouri you must vote for a democrat, because a republican will simply not let you have that choice. >> jennifer: exactly right. christine you completely on the money amplifying what your mom was saying last night. christine pelosi. coming up probably not the face you would think about when th

senate race? guest a once upon a time, claire mccaskill was the most democrats -- most vulnerable democrat, if not the most vulnerable incumbent. she had been very close with barack obama, and he was very unpopular in the state. and she had this controversy where there was an airplane owned by her family that was being written off for tax reasons. then came the republican primary and taught a can, he won in the primary somehow, though thought to be the weakest. then he had this unfortunate comment about how legitimate rate is not likely to cause pregnancy -- rape is not likely to cause pregnancy, becoming fodder for late-night comedians and giving heartburn to republicans across the nation. but he has not gone away. outside kansas city and st. louis, he remains very popular with evangelical voters. the race is not a done deal. some republicans are thinking that if it is doable, maybe we do come back and put in some money. right now clare mccaskill is out-spending him 10-1. host: let's take a look at this claire mccaskill campaign ad. >> he said he did not like social security. he
